I’ve planned to show you one of a few bread recipes that are waiting in a queue today, or travel photos that take me forever to post. But it’s cold and it’s windy. And I mean extremely windy. I’m sitting on a couch with a blanket and cat on my laps. A cold I got a week ago is still with me. So taking into consideration all that factors I prefer to share something comforting and easy to make.
I made these cookies for a friend Moira, who was nice enough to take care of our cats during our trip to Poland. I thought that it would be a nice thing to leave her some cookies. I know she really likes Mutu and Filo (see some photos from her first cat-sitting here), but finding cookies when you come over has never a bad thing, hasn’t it? The chocolate chip cookies matched my agenda perfectly, they were damn simple and quick to make. The result was delicious. Good, we were leaving as I would eat too many.
It’s also a very popular recipe, I almost felt embarrassed as just the other week I spotted the recipe over at Amee’s blog. My only excuse is that great minds think alike and a great recipe will always find it’s way.
S0 if you have 10 minutes to spare make some cookies.
The recipe comes from "River Cottage Everyday" by Hugh Whittingstall.
